Gmail automatically inserts a link around phone numbers

Both the desktop and mobile version(s) of Gmail now insert an anchor link around phone numbers. In the desktop version, the link opens Google’s new voice/chat console which is displayed along the right column of the Gmail interface.

To block this, use an HTML entity in your phone number that Gmail does not recognize such as “­”

­212­-389­-3934 

In the above example, we inserted this entity before each dash.
